The national telecommunications giant is asking the state Public Stadium Authority to approve a 15-year, $162.7 million extension of the deal to keep its name on the stadium, a special legislative advisory committee was told Wednesday. The authority, which oversees the sports facility built with taxpayer money, is likely to agree. Dan Barrett, a sports business consultant the authority hired to review the deal, estimated the new contract would rank fifth among the 24 NFL teams that sell the naming rights to their stadiums.
